Harleyless at present but I've owned 2 over the years.

There is place for a Fatboy in my garage though   :biggrin:

I did..
Sold my 1200 Sporty & changed to a Kawasaki Vulcan VN1500 until I can afford a new Road King Classic.

I've got one, though it's very small, 1/32nd scale model. :biggrin:

I suppose it's not correct for e now to buy full Harley leathers to go with it?

I work with them, and through the years my favourite's always been a Softail Custom. It's one of those bikes that just fits right when you get on. Way,way out of my price range though...even the Evo's.
If at first you don't succeed, take another swig of whiskey and try again...

I don't own one but I had to ride one for the whole day in January for a film advert add for the Royal Bank Scotland, what a monster they said it was a FSX low rider 1350cc only thing was it did not like the corners on the Franschoek pass nearly had a off on the hairpin at the top . It was a great experience. ;)
ROUTE DIFFICULTY:1 = tar
2 = good gravel /pillion friendly
3 = interspersed with sand, mud, sand , bush / not pillion friendly
4 = lots of sand, technical riding
5 = expert only (we are not worthy, still to meet one)
